I've been trying to wean our family off Ziplocs. OK, maybe not completely wean....there are times when only a Ziploc will do. But B and I began to notice how many of those bags we were going through and it started bothering us. Sometimes they get used for just a couple of hours and then what? Sit in a landfill for a million billion years. I don't want to know. I think I mentioned we started using those waxed paper bags (paper breaks down much more quickly plus you don't have the scary plastic factor). But these cloth bags might be even better! Great for a snack in the car for the kids or a sandwich for me. Aren't they cute??
